Today, Tuesday, the White House issued a statement saying that US President Joe Biden had signed a presidential memorandum allowing US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to grant immediate aid to the Lebanese army, amounting to $47 million.

“I hereby authorize the Secretary of State to direct up to $25 million in goods and services from the stockpile and resources of any agency of the United States of America to provide immediate assistance to the Lebanese Armed Forces,” Biden said in a memo to Blinken.

“I also hereby authorize the Secretary of State to reduce the cost of up to $22 million on defense materials and services from the Department of Defense, to provide immediate assistance to the Lebanese Armed Forces,” the President added in his memo.

The economic crisis in Lebanon affected the Lebanese army, as the French Ministry of the Armed Forces announced that about 20 countries had agreed to provide urgent assistance to the army.

Minister Florence Parly chaired a video conference for this purpose that included the member states of the International Support Group for Lebanon, including the United States, Russia, China, Italy and Germany, as well as the Gulf states.

And in July, Qatar sent, via a military plane, the first shipment of food aid destined for the Lebanese army from Al Udeid Air Base, as part of a plan to provide the economically and politically collapsing country with 70 tons of aid per month for a year.
